Posted June 17, 2014

This is a fantastic high school where teachers encourage us students to excel in school academics and our school athletics. They challenge us with our everyday work at school and we go home knowing numerous new things every day. The majority of the kids here are very respectful and magnanimous towards others, I have not had any bullying problems at this school my 9th grade year. I recommend this school to everyone.

The principal is awesome and is very involved on all levels. I have been VERY pleased with the majority of my 9th grader's teachers and coaches. Truly nothing negative to say about this school.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
